The Minnesota Vikings passing game had a field day in Week 10 against Washington. The Vikings No. 1 receiver, Stefon Diggs, enjoyed his best game since Week 4. He is also healthy for the first time since then. Diggs caught four passes for 78 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the win, doing most of his damage early. He had no trouble facing Washington’s stellar cover corner Josh Norman.
Diggs should feel good heading into a matchup with a formidable Los Angeles Rams defense. Diggs played well against two of the better outside cornerbacks in the league last week in Washington. The Rams have a top-10 pass defense that has the second-most interceptions and fourth-most sacks so far this season.
Fantasy impact: Diggs actually has an easier matchup against the Rams this week despite the fact that their defense is much better. The Rams have an incredible slot corner, Nickell Robey-Coleman, who could slow down the Vikings hottest receiver last week, Adam Thielen. Their outside corners are not as great, however. A lot of Diggs’ day will hinge on the play of QB Case Keenum. If Keenum plays relatively well, Diggs has the biggest upside of all the Vikings receivers this week.
